Was your answer YES? In the lead up to Small Business Saturday on 5th December, the Federation of Small Businesses, Oakham Town Partnership and Get Me My Mortgage are working together to promote our local independent businesses. We are asking you to celebrate and support the retailers and businesses we have in our vibrant market towns.
Small Business Saturday is a non-commercial grassroots campaign which runs nationally to highlight small business success. Celebrated across the UK, the initiative falls on the first Saturday in December each year but aims to have a lasting positive impact on small businesses.
Celebrate and support Small Business Saturday in Oakham and Uppingham and have the chance of winning a 1st prize of £100 voucher and 2nd and 3rd prize vouchers (amounts to be announced) to spend in participating businesses. The competition will run from 23rd November until 4pm on Saturday 5th December.
And what do you have to do to win? It’s easy!
Flyers and entry forms are available from participating businesses and various locations throughout the 2 towns. All you need to do is look for the Small Business Poster displayed in shop windows, find and note what little furry animal is sitting nearby and ask the retailer to sign your entry form. The winners will be those with the most confirmed entries.
Our local businesses are an integral part of our community by sustaining lively town centres, contributing to the local economic area. Please support your local shops not only on the run up to Christmas but throughout the year.
Don’t forget to keep a watchful eye on those fantastic shop window displays and find the Small Business Saturday poster and shop locally!
